The Miracle of Accepted Forgiveness

Early one morning, Jesus stood before Pilate on the brink of making forgiveness available to all men for all crimes.  The cost would be enormous for such an unprecedented and generous offer.  Yet there were those who would refuse it.  Judas went and hung himself.  Perhaps he felt he was beyond forgiveness.  The crowd, when confronted with their responsibility for condemning an innocent man, shouted, “His blood be upon us and our children.”  They felt they were in no need of forgiveness.  How ironic.

I am in awe of God’s grace.  Not only is forgiveness expensive.  Accepting it continues to be rare.  And yet, I am one of those few who are completely forgiven and I accept it.  Praise God.refused
